to their country and are in her words at the heart of what makes america great and good. president obama vowed to give -- bring their killers to justice. >> the united states of america will never retreat to the world, we will never stop working for the dignity and freedom that every person deserves, whatever their creed, whatever their faith. that's the essence of american leadership. that's the spirit that sets us apart from other nations. this was their work in benghazi and this is the work we will carry on. >> president obama today talking of the mission that so many americans do and what four american died doing. we put them front and center tonight. ambassador christopher stevens, sean smith, glen doherty and tyrone woods. joining me on the phone is ambassador stevens' stepfather. i am so sorry for your loss and please extend our condolences to your entire family. what do you want people to know about your stepson? >> well, i think what you learn today, it tells me what his legacy was at the anderson air force base when the caskets were brought back, 800 members of the state department w
that speech, on the cbs evening news, president obama also had sharp words for mitt romney, who's come under fire from democrats and some republicans for his statements lashing out at the obama administration's response to the attacks in benghazi and cairo. statements that whatever you believe about american foreign policy are simply not factual. we'll get to the battle over that in a moment. first we do want to focus on the attacks themselves, what happened last night and what is happening right now with the latest information we have. again, you're looking at live pictures now from cairo. as we said, breaking news both in libya and cairo to tell you about. yesterday's all-out assault on the american embassy may be over but the fighting around it continues tonight in cairo. the compound now ringed with security forces, egyptian security forces who are reportedly using tear gas and about 500 protesters gathering at a mosque in nearby tahrir square. those are the images you're seeing. amid all that, we're also learning more details, pretty bizarre stuff, about that video that seems to have li
about president obama voters when he didn't think the cameras were rolling. a camera rolling and "mother jones" magazine got the video. >> there are 47% of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. all right, there are 47% of them who are with him, who are depend enon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has to take care of them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, you name it. that's an entitlement. he starts off with a huge number. these are people who pay no income tax. >> we got these clips from "mother jones" magazine. the romney campaign has not denied the substance of what's in the tapes. in the tape you hear romney saying my job is to not worry about those people, he'd never convince them. he also joked he'd have a better shot if his father, george romney, had been mexican. the question now, does the playing of this tape hurt or help his chances? gop strategist ari fleischer and paul begala and on the phone, cnn's jim acosta. paul, you say this is potentially devastating blow for the romney
-- as you pointed out, i help the pro obama super pac. and these are the two narratives on romney we're trying to push. first, that he doesn't care about the middle class. well, thanks for the help, mitt. in the latest cnn poll, by the way, before this gaffe, president obama had a 20-point lead over mitt romney in the question of who is more in touch with the concerns of the middle class. so it hurts there, hurts on the second front. there's a tax policy study that the democrats have been pushing, president clinton referred to it in his convention speech in charlotte. and it says in order to give big tax cuts for the rich, mitt romney's going to have to raise taxes on the middle class. well, when you're claiming to wealthy people that 47% of americans don't pay federal income tax, i think a lot of those people, retirees, working class folks are going to listen to that and think, gee, i guess the democrats are right, i guess he does want to raise taxes on the middle class in order to help the rich. this helps the democrats in two important ways. >> ari, it's not just someone like paul
john mccain supported president obama's action to oust moammar khadafy and the president's steps taken since then. i spoke to senator mccain earlier today. senator mccain, a source familiar with the ambassador's thinking toll us in the months before his death he talked about being worried about the never-ending security threats in bengha benghazi, the threats he was facing and growing al qaeda presence and mentioned being on an al qaeda hit list. and he said in june to a journalist, maybe you should head east to benghazi to the situation there which appears the be heating up. given what we are learning about the concerns that he had, does it make sense to you the small level of security that he apparently had with him? >> it doesn't make any sense. and i'll tell you what else doesn't make any sense, the white house spokesman, secretary of state and ambassador to the u.n. stating categorically that it was not a terrorist attack when obviously it had all the earmarks of a terrorist attack, including rocket-propelled grenades, heavy weapons an a well carried out military operation. and wh
. in the latest cnn polle this gaffe president obama had a 20-point lead over mitt romney in the question of who is more in touch with the concerns of the middle class. so it hurts there, hurts on the second front. there's a tax policy sudy that the democrats have been pushing president clinton referred to it in his convention speech in charlotte. and it says in order to give big tax cuts for the rich mitt romney's going to have to raise taxes on the middle class. well when you're claiming to wealthy people that 47% of americans don't pay federal income tax, i think a lot of those people, retirees, working class folks are going to listen to that and think gee i guess he does want to raise the taxes on the middle class in order to help the rich. this helps the democrats in two important ways. >> said that this tape could be potentially crippling. when you have a guy who wants to be president of all of the united states say 40% of the american people view themselves as victims and want handouts. what is that -- how bad is this. >> let's start with the 47% figure, which paul di
in this campaign was to make it a referendum on obama. obama's goal was to make it a choice and oddly now it's become a referendum on romney. all the focus now is on romney and who he is. now, the upside for that for romney is he has an opportunity to reveal his vision, his goals, his policies in a way that we really haven't heard before because i think now he realizes and the campaign realizes that it can't just be a referendum on obama, that he now has to fill in the story, and that's got to be part of their strategy now. >> gloria, this talk about his father just doesn't feel like damage control. it seems like the latest example of something they've tried to do at the conventions to make the governor seem more relatable, like someone who isn't totally insulated from the problems of ordinary people. doesn't it? >> yeah. i mean, that's their real problem, and if you look at the numbers, wolf, it's kind of unsustainable for them. they have to turn this around, which is that by a three-to-one margin according to some polls, voters believe that president obama better understands the problems o
president obama is vowing to find the killer there. the u.s. ambassador, chris stevens died tuesday night after a mob stormed the consulate in benghazi. the violence, though, spreading not only in cairo, and you can see live pictures from egypt, it's spreading in the region and to a certain degree as well. we'll stay on top of it. that's it for us, thank you very much for watching, "ac 360" starts right now. breaking news tonight. >>> good evening, everyone. american warships and u.s. marines on the move, drones airborne. and a running battle on the streets of cairo between police and protesters outside and near the u.s. embassy and at a mosque in tahrir square. these are live pictures. late new developments in the wake of the siege there yesterday and the attack on the u.s. consulate that left four americans dead, including j. christopher stevens, the ambassador to libya who's being remembered as a dedicated and talented advocate for this country overseas. it is hard to overstate the significance of what happened last night at that american consulate in benghazi. he is the first ambassad
in that part of libya than tripoli. >> previously you mentioned people from the obama administration said they felt this wasn't a planned attack, an offshoot of this video. but the director of the national counterterrorism center said at a hearing today, attack in benghazi was "a terrorist attack." he didn't specify if it was preplanned or not. it goes beyond what we've heard before. how significant is that? >> i think it's significant that the secretary of the united nations would go on our networks and tell people things that are absolutely false and fly in the face of the facts. i think maybe the american people are owed an apology. but the most important thing is that we have to understand that this video was not the cause of it. the cause of it was islamists who use these videos in order to inflame these people, in order to attack america. i mean, anderson, i'm confident right now there, are people making videos, just as a french cartoonist made cartoons, are making videos right now. we should stand up to freedom of speech and we'll defend people to speak out, rather than condemn hat
